An allegedly drunk father in Michigan has been accused by police of allowing his 9-year-old daughter take the wheel of a truck, a feat she could only accomplish by sitting in a booster seat. He bragged about his daughter's driving skills at a nearby gas station and later to the officers who arrested him.
It's always nice to see fathers taking such a deep interest and pride in their daughter's lives. I'm sure we all hope that her father will be just as boastful and proud of his daughter once she finds relatively stable and supportive foster parents who don't give beer its own level on the Food Pyramid.
According to the police, the future Father of the Year claimed he was just giving his kid driving lessons, a right that he believes had been granted upon him as an American citizen. I haven't read the Constitution in awhile but I'm pretty sure I don't recall seeing an amendment that grants alcoholic fathers the right to teach their underage daughters to operate a moving vehicle in custom vans that are painted to look like Starsky and Hutch are experiencing a mid-life crisis. He probably would have had a better chance getting out of trouble by claiming he was either an undercover Starsky and/or Hutch.
